UDTT Makes Available for Sale Its Proprietary Bio-Terrorism Research

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 8, 2007 --Universal Detection Technology (OTCBB: UDTT) (www.udetection.com) a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bio-terrorism and other infectious health threats, announced today that it has made a recently copyrighted research paper available for sale on the Company's e-commerce store. This is the first copyrighted work from UDTT. The paper, entitled "Bio-Terrorism; Five Years after the Anthrax Attacks of 2001 Are Our Buildings Ready," evaluates the readiness of buildings, airports, and other critical infrastructure to deal with a potential bio-terrorist attack.

According to the Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS), the largest non-governmental organization in the United States devoted exclusively to research and training on nonproliferation issues, due to a number of developments during the past decade, the threat that terrorists might resort to chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear weapons of mass destruction has received increased attention from US policymakers. While authorities are making sure that no more "shoe-bombers" can enter any planes, we are failing to go after those who might be acquiring the means of the next attack with weapons far more lethal than conventional explosives.

"We are excited to add this copyrighted material to UDTT's e-commerce store. The paper discusses the biological threats facing the world and the steps taken to combat these threats with a focus on buildings' vulnerabilities," said Nima Montazeri, UDTT's Vice President of Strategic Development. "This is part of our ongoing expansion of products, services and now proprietary research relating to the mitigation of WMD threats."
